Internship at Queens

From: Amandina Anastassiades <amandina.anastassiades<-a>
Date: Monday, August 25, 2014
The Isabel Bader Fellowship and accompanying Graduate Internship in
Textile Conservation and Research offer exciting research
opportunities at Queen's University and also link two of its unique
resources, the Queen's University Collection of Canadian Dress, at
the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, and the Master of Art Conservation
Program, Canada's only graduate degree in conservation theory and

Dating from the early 1800s to the 1970s, the Queen's University
Collection of Canadian Dress comprises over 2000 fashion items,
primarily from the Kingston region.  A major part of the collection
consists of women's garments, particularly from 1890 - 1910; it also
features a wide range of historic costume accessories in a variety
of materials, as well as children's clothing.  Through the generous
support of Dr. Isabel Bader, the collection is housed in a new
storage facility at the Agnes.

Recognized globally for the quality of its programs and research,
the Master of Art Conservation Program trains conservation
professionals who work in museums and galleries across Canada and in
many other countries. It is the only program of its kind in Canada
and one of five such programs in North America.  Program facilities
include well-equipped teaching laboratories where students learn to
treat and preserve works of art and culturally significant objects
to the highest standards.

The Isabel Bader Graduate Intern will assist the Fellow to document
and investigate the Queen's University Collection of Canadian Dress
over a period of three months.  The Intern will undertake detailed
condition reports on selected items from the Collection and carry
out a designated number of treatments with documentation for use by
the Agnes Etherington Art Centre.  It is expected that the Intern
will also act as a research assistant for the Fellow.  Recent
graduates of conservation training programs are invited to apply for
the position.

The value of the Isabel Bader Graduate Internship in Textile
Conservation and Research is $9,000.00 CDN.  Projected starting date
is 5 January 2015.
